article imageNew data: Who is interested in changing jobs right now?

By Tim Sandle     Aug 5, 2019 in Business
A new data review finds that five percent of U.S. software engineers and 10 percent of CMOs are likely to be interested in changing jobs at any time. This means that businesses need to focus on retaining their top talent and attracting new talent.
The data came from ENGAGE Talent's internal platform. The analysis of the data provides insights into several of the reasons why personnel in key positions are thinking of switching roles. For the analysis, ENGAGE aggregated data covering industries, companies, professionals and market dynamics, matching such data with macroeconomic trends.
One of the highlights of the data was an examination of software engineers in the U.S., focusing on those who are most likely to change jobs in course of the next 90 days. 29 percent said they would move for personal growth opportunities. A bigger proportion, 49 percent said they would move due to concerns about their current employer’s business stability. The remaining 39 percent are seeking a more positive workplace culture.
The majority of the software engineers polled identified as male (at 63 percent to 27 percent female); however, when it came to assessing those who are likely to change jobs, men and women are equal. With marketing, there was a similar balance, with women being slightly more inclined to consider leaving. For the marketers assessed, the number one reason for leaving was cited as growth opportunities; and there was a lower proportion who mentioned concerns over business stability.
The data review also indicated some geographical differences, where the scarcity of skills in some locales makes some occupations more likely to be targeted in passive recruiting efforts.
Taking a different employment sector, among nurses who are likely interested in changing jobs, the analysis found that over 38 percent are likely concerned about their current employers’ business stability and this could be sufficient for them to seek alternative employment.
